    The car has been driven almost every week from that i got it.



    I have broken som things too front bulkhead and front diff.


    Trashed my tires

    But som glue fix that.

    The amount of torque made the truck do wheelies all the time so i bought the wheeliebar

    What wheels are those that you put the Mud Slingers on? They look like the Proline Tech 5 wheels. Did you have any issues installing the tires?

    #BRICK57 yes the are the proline tech 5. I haven't glued them yet, only test mounted I'm going to modify the foam to night.
    But because the are 0 offset rims the are going to rub against (hmmm whats the english word) steering rod. I think its call that.

    the easy fix for that is to buy a set of extended hexes, I used the integy +3mm 17mm hexes. They make them in +6mm too. I don't know if that is enough to give you the clearance you wanted, but I don't think its gonna take much. We call the steering rod a "tie-rod". But steering rod works just fine

    I have one question. I bought some double orange springs (5437) but this are 10mm smaller then the original spring. I cant find the right kind of spring. I live in Sweden and we don't have the same amount of parts in the hobby stores that you have in USA.

    So do you have any ideas for my?
    Can I just put some more preload on the shock or i loose to much suspension travel then?

    I use the double purple springs rated at 6.4 for stiffness. Traxxas part #5445. They are not as long as the double yellow. I preload mine almost as far as you can preload. You will not lose suspension travel, the suspension will just be more stiff. To counter act the stiffness of the spring I use 80 wt oil in the shock to balance the rebound of the spring. Otherwise you will bounce all over the place. If you search the Summit forum for "shock absorbers" or "Summit sag" or "Shock Springs" there is a ton of info on how shocks work and what other people have done.

    I want a new motor too but the price is to high right now. A mamba monster 2200kv cost in Sweden 403.53 US dollar.
    Every single thing is most expansive her in Sweden compared to USA. 😢

    Very nice truck. It looks like you enjoy it a lot

    A less expensive option for a motor would be the Dewalt 14.4. It would also use the stock speed controller and still be waterproof. I do not know of the availability in Sweden though.

    There are several threads on this forum regarding its performance and installation.

    Also, I think you may have purchased the GTR orange springs(5437) rather than the double orange Summit springs(5649). The 5649 is longer and has a higher rate.

    Another setback. My front diff is broken again. Those Mudslingers and a too tight slipper clutch on the rocks crawling is a nightmare. After 5 min of crawling all went to pieces. Well well new parts has been bought just waiting on them to come in the mail...


    This time Im gone shim the diff when i rebuild the diff.

    Loosening your slipper may help. Been running the slingers for months and have not broke anything yet. I think i may have found the sweet spot on mine. Of course now that i have said something it will break today

    Im looking at upgrading the steering. I want single servo steering. I have looked around and found the Savox SA-1230SG Mega High Torque Coreless Digital Servo 0,16/36kg this must be enough right? The original is 9,2kg *2 = 18,4kg or I'm a thinking wrong?
    But is it good? Does any one have this? What else do i need to upgrade?

    I put this one in my Summits - http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SA1230...avsa1230sg.htm I think it is the same one your talking about. It has 500oz of torque at 6v which is what the bec feeds to the servo. I believe that is almost twice the torque that the 2 stock steering servos have. I also installed the alum steering/servo saver from Integy. I know you can get different brands, Integy was the only one who had it in stock when I installed mine. You may also want to get an extender for the wire that goes to the receiver. The stock wire with the Savox is barely long enough to reach from the passenger side. The nice thing about the Savox is the splines will fit the stock steering horn. Mine turns my mudslingers just fine. It is a really nice upgrade, you wont regret doing it.

    Yesterday i bought the Savox 1230sg because one of the steering servo's gears want up in pieces. So for my question do I need to upgrade anything else to my steering? Or stock plastic will work?

    Installed this with my Mudslingers. http://www.integy.com/st_prod.html?p...3#.Ugu-KkoUvFI I know there are other brands, maybe someone will chime in with other options.

    Stock plastic components will work!!
    But... I've found many of the single servo conversions I have done, all of the servos came with an Aluminium servo horn. So you don't HAVE to do anything except install the new servo with the Aluminium servo horn provided. BUT many people, myself included will also buy an Aluminium single servo saver arm. Integy, HR, STRC all make them. I use the STRC one.

    Have you tried ebay. I live in the smallest state in Australia, and buy everything of ebay I pay about half about half of what it would cost me at the LHS, even with international freight.

    Yes ebay is good but Sweden love their VAT and taxes so the price of shipping tax and customs it unfortunately becomes just as expensive. I haft to buy it from Europe to avoid all extra cost.

    Coming soon a major update in the near future. Single steering!
    The wait has been long but well worth it.

    I want to dedicate a big thank you to a special person here on the forum that has helped me!

    One question , do you need an external bec to Savox 1230sg ? Everything is original on the car except the servo. According to the spec , I think you would not need it .

    Spec Check:
    Dimensions (mm): 40.3x20.2x45.0
    Weight (g): 79.0
    Speed ​​( @ 6.0V sec/60 ) : .16 s
    Torque ( @ 6.0V oz- in) : 36kg
    Gear : Unique Steel
    Bearing : 2BB
    Case: Full Aluminum
    25 Tooth Spline

    But the steering feels a bit slow and decrepit in between ate .

    I run a savox 1283sg with no external BEC and haven't noticed anything wrong. Its 100 times better than stock setup.

    I actually stripped out the stock servo horn a bit the first time I ran it. Went and promptly got an aluminum horn.
